John, 55 from Cheltenham, will also be responsible for looking after the mobility dealer’s Motability fleet, as well as carrying out and managing general repairs and services for end-users.

John commented: “I love working and being part of the team at Lifestyle & Mobility and my aim is to do the best I can for my customers & clients, resolving problems ASAP so they can become mobile again.”

Prior to joining the mobility industry, he has been involved in a variety of different industries, from golf course maintenance to equipment sales in the USA.

Outside of work, John says he is a big football fan and amateur fan of many sports, as well as loves walking his dog on long sandy beaches.

“I also try to enjoy life as much as possible as we don’t get that long on planet earth!” he finished.
